Drew Barrymore doesn’t flinch at Hugh Grant insulting all of Hollywood.
After making several headlines for his remarks at the 2023 Oscars, Grant poked fun at former actress Barrymore’s singing in a Wired interview with her “Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves” co-stars Chris Pine and Michelle Rodriguez.
During the interview, Grant, 62, answered “the most searched questions on the web” and was asked if he actually sang in the 2007 rom-com “Music and Lyrics.”
The British actress admitted that she does sing, but she’s “unbelievably auto-tuned. Actually, that’s not true. I’m a bit auto-tuned, but not as much as some people.”
He threw Barrymore, 48, who starred opposite him in the film, under the bus, calling her singing skills “horrendous”.
“Drew Barrymore was in that movie with me and I don’t think he’d mind if I said his singing was scary. I’ve heard dogs bark better than he sings,” admitted Grant.
He added: “But… when she was tuned, she sounded a lot better than me because she’s got heart and voice and rock ‘n’ roll. Whereas I sounded like Julie Andrews and I was going to be kind of rock ‘n’ roll as well.
Barrymore responded to Grant’s comments in the healthiest way possible, sharing a video of herself singing “Way Back Into Love” from “Music and Lyrics.”
He posted the video on Instagram with the caption “#SingForHughGrant JOIN ME.”
When he finished singing to the hairbrush, he turned directly to Grant and said, “Oh Hugh, Bert, Hubert, it’s for you.”
Meanwhile, Grant went viral after the Oscars when he confronted “rude” ABC Oscars red carpet host Ashley Graham, 35.
The ‘Notting Hill’ actor was seen rolling his eyes at the end of the awkward interview. viewers to describe the star as a “whole hole”.
He also made headlines after a crude joke cracked on stage while performing at the 95th Academy Awards with his “Four Weddings and a Funeral” bandmate Andie MacDowell, in which he described himself as “basically a scrotum.”
On “The View” Thursday morning, Grant told co-host Whoopi Goldberg, 67, that she wrote the joke and was “very nervous” about it.
“I think I got away with it,” he said of the self-deprecating line.
